A great first trip to the Black Rock!  
Start time is really the cook-off time, many things will start happening Saturday morning!  Actual meeting location is the Cassidy Mine Site about 15 miles from the FBR Office, map and directions posted there. This is a weekend of primitive camping although RV's and Trailers can easily make it to the site, no hook-ups etc. Portapotties for campers but must bring own water etc etc. Several hundred people will be meeting for a variety of tours, activities, and speakers in the Black Rock Desert about 100 miles north of Reno. Hot Springs Visits too! We’ll have a Dutch Oven cook-off, kid’s activities, tours to various areas, and expert speakers on the history, geology, and activities of the area. Leader is very familiar with the area.

Bring your HAM Radio, there will be lots of HAM activity! Contact David KD7YIM for area repeater info. We normally camp on the edge of the Playa about 3 miles off the pavement, easy access, RV’s & Trailers OK but no hook-ups, dumps etc except in Gerlach. Easy, Dogs on leash. For more info go to
